Watch This Woman Make The Most Impressive Move In Jenga History

Watch This Woman Make The Most Impressive Move In Jenga History
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

Caution: Do not try this at home, ladies and gentlemen. (But if you do, please record it and send it to us, because that shit’s bound to be hilarious.)

When Redditor dkbobby‘s family gathered ’round the table to play a harmless game of Jenga, little did they know they’d all witness what I’ve declared as one of the greatest moves in the game’s history. Dkbobby’s sister-in-law decided to try and karate chop the bottom of the block stack, which they obviously needed to record because it’s practically impossible, but what happened next is MIND-BLOWING. We can all hope to be even as half as athletically skilled during our upcoming holiday game nights. No word yet on how this move can be applied to Scattergories. [Happy Place]

15 Awesome Board Games You Should Gift For The Holidays

With the holidays approaching, families and friends all around the world will be congregating in houses, apartments and cabins to eat, drink, and be merry. Inevitably, they’ll make their way to the living room and play a board game. Unfortunately, most of them will be playing things like MonopolyClue and Risk, but, even apart from the fact that they celebrate unfettered greed, murder and warfare, take it from a games scholar — these games are actually terrible. The fact is, there are much better and more enjoyable board games being produced every year that are actually worth your time and money — you’ve just never heard of them yet. Read more on Ask Men…

6 Great Board Games (For Ruining Friendships)

6 Great Board Games (For Ruining Friendships)

I played a lot of board games growing up, because I was an aggressively unathletic kid who appreciated any socially acceptable excuse to play with toys, and games are essentially toys with rules (this is a phase I have yet to grow out of). And competition is an integral part of most games, so a certain amount of skullduggery among friends is to be expected. However, there are some games, regardless of how fun or awesome they may be, that seem to have been designed for the explicit purpose of ruining friendships. The following board games are virtually guaranteed to leave you and your friends feeling so bitter that the rules might as well read “Stuff corpse shit into an electric toaster and leave it cooking in the center of the table while players take turns screaming racism into each other’s open mouths until both slots pop up and scald everyone’s faces with zombie diarrhea.” Read more on Cracked…

Inconceivable! There’s Going To Be A “Princess Bride” Board Game

This is just concept art right now, the final design is TBD but Game Salute is currently developing a Princess Bride board game. They write, “In order to do justice to the entire story, The Princess Bride: The Board Game is comprised of individual scenes, with each scene presenting a mini-game that advances players through the central story.  This allows players looking for a quick, fun visit to a beloved classic to play a game that lasts under an hour, while players who want to experience the entire Princess Bride story in one sitting can enjoy an epic day of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles.” Read more…

6-Year-Old Girl (Board) Gamer Calls Out Hasbro For Gender Inequality

I never played Guess Who? all that much as a child, which might explain why I never realized how imbalanced it is in terms of gender. Or maybe I just wasn’t as perceptive as this six-year-old girl, who not only noticed that there are only five girls compared to 19 boys, but also took the time to write to Hasbro about it. Reads her letter:

“The Wire” Monopoly Board Game Needs To Become A Reality

To Whom It May Concern At Parker Brothers:

Please make this “Wire”-inspired mockup of Monopoly a reality. I need it. I need it the way Bubbles needs smack. Speaking of which, I would also like to humbly suggest the addition of Omar Little, Stringer Bell, Marlo Stanfield, Avon Barksdale, and Prop Joe game pieces. (I promise not to make the Omar and Stringer game pieces make out.) Anyway, can you get started on this soon? I would like it for Christmas. Please don’t make me bust a cap in your ass.

Sincerely,

Amelia
